I have been working at The School District of Escambia County full-time (More than 10 years)
In my experience, District Level and Administrative Staff are very supportive.Training opportunities are abundant.
The pay is low and the bonuses are too.
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The School District of Escambia County (Pensacola, FL) in June 2017.
Submitted online, given an interview time, interviewed with a panel of 3 mid-level district techs, 2 school administrators, and 2 teachers, within 8-9 days. I pulled my application so I don't know if an offer was coming. I pulled my app. because I learned during the interview that the teachers had "voted" to take the Tech lab/office and use it for a secretary and a teaching room. The tech was expected to "float" around all day and presumably stay in classrooms and "had no use for a desk". I have worked these roles before and I had to chuckle at that image: repairing parts in a classroom with kids under the age of 10 running around, or on a bathroom floor, a janitor's closet, or a cafeteria table? I also withdrew when I realized I would not start to work until late July, nearly 6 weeks out, and this district does not pay until the end of August for that first month back to school. I would have to presume this employer was proposing I hang out for 6 weeks for a job to start and then wait another month for a first paycheck, based on how they paid summer starts last year. You also have to prepay your background check out of pocket before you start and are not reimbursed for that. Last year I trained all day one day in July and was never paid or treated like a July hire. Probably illegal.
